What was Joystiq stance on Gamergate? If they were against it (Which I would guess they were, all of the media is, apparently.), do you guys think it had something to do with it?

They were, though TotalBiscuit found some value in them so take that for what it's worth. Gaming sites are the last thing I ever look at so I couldn't really care less. Much like AAA games, there isn't much worth in gaming "journalism." Even less so now, after they burnt their own flock at the stake.

I was/am struggling to understand what Gamersgate was all about? One group seemed to be smooching up to another group and questions of impartially in gaming journalism was in question or something like that?
